My Birthday

Written by Jon Carr Read 1 time

So my birthday was last Tuesday the 8th. I had some work in the morning, then in the early afternoon I decided to play a little Insurgency as I was in the process of reviewing it for MacWorld.

Needing to check out the updated AI I chose a cooperative mode on Peak. Informing my squad-mates I had to go soon for a birthday party, one asked if it was for me or a friend. I said for me. He replied, really? Woooo! And proceeded to empty his clip into the air in celebration. I was touched.

As a gift, he declared himself my personal bodyguard, and if I died, he would go out in a blaze of glory. A few minutes later I was sniped by a sneaky insurgent. True to his word, he charged up the mountain guns blazing until the no doubt bemused AI cut him down.

I wish I had a screenshot or recording of the event because it was funny and great all at once. I don't even remember the kids name, which makes me feel bad. I salute you whoever you are, you made my day better.

As a sidenote, you should really play Insurgency. It's a ton of fun.
